"Self promotion is a good chance to critique your own work," says illustrator Kate Hazell about her latest portfolio. She's sending the newspaper to potential clients – along with a postcard and a coaster reading "Maybe I'm your cup of tea", so readers can sit down with a brew while flipping through her work.

Action // Reaction

Digital mini printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

Action // Reaction is a collection of 36 paintings by Belgian artist Jolijn Baeckelandt, responding to found newspaper advertisements. The paintings were done on top of real advertisements from different newspapers, and the original works will be on display at Troebel Neyntje in Antwerp next month. The mini zine, available at the show, is purposely dense and frenetic – presenting "an overload of images like we see in newspapers in daily life."

Epistem

Traditional mini printed on 52gsm recycled newsprint

Epistem is a new publication examining what happens when artists and curators use photography to comment on social change. Produced by The Prindle Institute for Ethics at DePauw University, Epistem is distributed at photography conferences and beyond, with a goal of sparking discussions about photography's role in the political and social landscape.

"We always knew we wanted to take a print-first approach to Epistem," says Conner Gordon of DePauw University. Newsprint as a medium felt "political and immediate – a natural marriage of form and content."
